“Breakfast or lunch...you decide!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The only negative about this restaurant is that it isn't open past 4 because sometimes you just like breakfast for dinner. We had lunch at this restaurant. We were amazed by the variety of offerings and the reasonable prices. The breakfast items as well as the lunch items were substantial. You will not leave hungry. There are senior lunch specials...they all involved mashed potatoes and gravy (except of the paste item). The senior selection also included the drink and choice of dessert. This was a great value...but there are too many carbs in these offerings...meat on bread, covered with potatoes and gravy. If you want a prolonged life and you are a senior citizen, I would encourage you to steer away from these meals. The soups are homemade and delicious. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. Business was slow, but it was early in the week and a bit late in the lunch hour. This would be a particularly nice place to take your older family members for a meal. It's probably "kid friendly" too.

“Pancakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

This place has the best pancakes and friendliest wait staff in the area. The value is great, they're delicious and very filling for the price. And I was impressed with the fact that it was definitely a joint for locals. I was pleasantly surprised!

“A Good Place for Omelets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We stop here regularly for their tasty omelets.
The service has always been friendly and the prices fair.
Their American fried potatoes are the best in class here,
even better than their two other locations.

“Not bad at all!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

My husband and 4 year old grandson and l went here to eat. The outside of the place didn't look to appealing but the inside was a surprise. It was clean, and not real busy. They have a host to seat you which was good, but we had to wait a couple minutes for them to see us standing there.
Our server was nice, and gave us drinks right away. We ordered, shared french toast and eggs with our grandson and my husband had italian beef sandwich. Both meals were very good. We got a big serving also, good thing l shared with someone. We didn't have to wait long for the food. It was really a surprise, good food and not to expensive. I would go back there again.
